10A H-Bridge motor driver with integrated current sensing and current sense output

The DRV8873 device is an integrated driver IC for driving a brushed DC motor in industrial applications. Two logic inputs control the H-bridge driver, which consists of four N-channel MOSFETs that drive motors bi-directionally with up to 10A peak current. The device operates from a single power supply and supports a wide input supply range from 4.5-38V.

First 60GHz In-Car automotive grade Radar-on-Chip announced

Vayyar Imaging has announced the first 60GHz automotive-grade MIMO Radar-on-Chip (ROC). The 60GHz solution offers the complete functionality of Vayyar's 79GHz reference-design, enabling the automotive industry to meet global EU NCAP and US Hot-Car needs. Vayyar's solution displays the dimension, location, breathing pattern and movement of people, utilising proprietary 4D point-cloud VOXEL imaging.


Motor driver with hardware interface and integrated current sensing 

The DRV8873 is an integrated driver for industrial and automotive applications. With 10 A peak current capability and 4.5-38V voltage range, this device supports a wide range of applications. PH/EN or PWM interface allows simple interfacing to controller circuits while also allowing independent ½ bridge control to drive two solenoid loads.
